Bruce Jenner Drives SUV Into Lexus Causing Four-Car Pile-Up, One Woman Dead, Five Children Hospitalized
via NBC Los Angeles:
One person was killed in a four-vehicle crash that involved reality TV star Bruce Jenner on Pacific Coast Highway Saturday afternoon, authorities said.
Jenner’s is cooperating with the investigation into the crash at about 12:15 p.m. in Malibu, near Solstice Canyon, according to a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department investigation. Seven people were left with minor to moderate injuries, fire officials said.
Bruce Jenner was driving his Cadillac SUV and wasn’t hurt, according to LA County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Sgt. Philip Brooks.
Deputies have not determined the cause of the crash, but did describe what happened based on a preliminary investigation.
Jenner was driving an SUV carrying a dune buggy on the northbound side of PCH that rear-ended a Lexus sedan, Brooks said, noting that traffic was not moving very quickly. One of the drivers may have stopped short.
The Lexus was sandwiched between Jenner’s SUV and a Toyota Prius, Brooks said.
The Lexus then spun or veered into the quickly moving southbound lane of PCH, where it was hit head-on by a Hummer, he said. The driver of the Lexus died.
Officials first said four cars were involved, then changed to only three. Deputies later clarified a final number of four vehicles involved in the crash.
Jenner did not appear to be chased by paparazzi at the time of the accident, Brooks said, contrary to reports from other news agencies.
The former Olympic athlete was cooperative with the investigation, taking a DUI exam on the scene and blood and alcohol tests at a hospital, Sgt. Matt Dunn said.
Authorities did not give out information about other the victims of the crash.
Both sides of the road were closed as investigators addressed the scene of the crash near the intersection of PCH and Corral Canyon Road, sheriff’s deputies said.
From the above pictures it looks like Bruce was looking at his phone.
